The Weeks Rocker in mahogany
$1850

I took this photo one spring afternoon as the sun set behind the live oak by the little lake.  I did not leave without sitting a spell.  "Spell" is the right word — a magical, entranced, and timeless rejuvenation.

parts for a mahogany rocking chairMahogany is durable in the weather.  It is often used as trim on boats, so we use it for our rocking chairs that may see duty on porches.  Without changing the contours or comfort, we have re-invented the construction of the seat to accommodate changes in humidity.  See Wood and Moisture. We tenon seven boards together with spaces between to allow for expansion and contraction.

While we chose mahogany and adapted the rocking chair to answer the call for a porch rocker, many of these chairs live indoors.  We can finish the mahogany rocking chairs for indoor or outdoor use, but we do not change the construction of the seat.

Mahogany is surprisingly light when newly worked — surprising because of the connotation of "mahogany color."  But the wood darkens and becomes richer in a few months.  The figure of mahogany is subtle with occasional mineral streaks, iridescence, and very small tight knots as character marks.

I did receive them, Gary.  They are beautiful.  My wife moved the mahogany out on our porch this morning.  I'm sitting in my cherry now.

My friend in California is jealous.

I love the chairs, but I also like supporting good craftsmen and artists.  Wish I had room for more.
